Creating Home is the ultimate dream book

Acorns Boutique  | Friday, August 18, 2017  |  1 PM

From acclaimed architect and designer Keith Summerour comes an alluring new book of carefully crafted dwellings that redefine the idea of home for today.

Keith Summerour was instrumental in establishing the architectural style of Old Edwards Inn and Spa after Art and Angela Williams brought the property in 2002 and began to transform it into a European-style luxury resort. With the goal of creating a sense of comfortable elegance found in the fine country houses of England and France, Summerour set about imbuing a sense of history and lore using varying materials selections, styles and finishing touches in the respective buildings and settings, resulting in a sense of having been added to over centuries. The end result is an experience of discovery for guests in every turn throughout the property, and an immersion into a gracious era of bygone times amid the stunning nature backdrop of North Carolina's Blue Ridge Mountains.

Reinterpreting and making new his own Southern legacy that speaks both of aristocratic charm and homespun appeal, these homes range from rustic retreats that draw their power from the land to elegant manor houses, but all share extraordinary character and charm that nod to history while reflecting the way people wish to live in the world today.

Enriched by the work of some of the top interior decorators working today, including Beth Webb, Barbara Westbrook, Circa Interiors, and Liza Bryan, as well as world-renowned landscape designers Jeremy Smearman and John Howard, and beautifully illustrated with all-new photography, Creating Home is the ultimate dream book.
